Mabel Taggart

       Mabel Irene Taggart, age 90, of Amanda, Ohio, passed away Friday, May 4, 2018 at her home after a courageous battle with Alzheimer’s. She was born August 27, 1927 in Guston, Kentucky to the late Ernest and Elsie Stith. Her three brothers, Baxter, Morris and Earl Stith, and two sisters, Mary Kendall and Jessie Edge preceded her in death. She was also preceded in death by her first husband of nearly 25 years, William Frederick Pugh; daughter, Elaine Hess in 1999, and grandson Jason Pugh in 2010. 
       Mabel worked at the Brown Hotel in Louisville, KY, the Department of Defense in Washington DC, the county extension office of Meade County, KY, and as a cook in the Plymouth, Ohio school system. Most of all, Mabel loved being a wife, mother and care giver to her family. 
       She is survived by her loving husband and faithful care giver of nearly 47 years, Rev. Julian Taggart; sons, Gary (Denel) Pugh of Durham, NC, and Kenny Pugh (the Singing Mailman) of South Bloomfield, Ohio; 3 grandchildren, 3 step-grandchildren, and 13 great grandchildren.
       The family will receive friends on Sunday, May 6, 2018 from 2-4 P.M. and 6-8 P.M. at the Taylor Funeral Home in Amanda. Funeral service will be at 11:00 A.M. on Monday at the Amanda Presbyterian Church with Pastor Liz Tietz officiating. Burial will be back home at Cap Anderson Cemetery, Brandenburg, KY on Tuesday with a grave side committal at 2:00 P.M.

My sincere sympathy.,always had a great respect for Mabel and especially you for your constant, loving, sincere, and patient time devoted to your loving wife. You and family will always be in my prayers.
